: Rememer how stupid the tank meta was?
Nowadays every game consists of me watching a Vayne 1v5.
: Junglers see themselves as a baby sitter having to watch idiotic children. I have yet to meet a jungle main who doesn't think every single lane is the problem.

Junglers get mad because we have a free view from the safety of our jungle, just watching our laners play like shit. Laners get mad because only Karthas can be everywhere on the map all at once.

: What the fuck happened to Mundo?
Honestly, buffs to Mundos damage are irrelevant. Its just a bandaid until his rework is up. His lack of mechanics make him an entirely useless champion, buffed or not. I cant really complain about his damage being buffed, it wont change the fact that hes useless.
: Is Lissandra weak?
as a stand-alone champion, yes. But team composition wise, she is extremely strong. And team composition is more important than individual power, so she's quite a strong champion with all things considered.
Reksee (NA)
: "Vayne...Power wise our take is she's on the border of needing a nerf, but not clearly over it."
Vayne mains: "Just end the game before she completes Guinsoos.". Me: Oh, okay.
: This Community isn't even that bad it's just the game.
every competitive game is toxic and has a shit community. Its a unavoidable side effect. WoW successfully avoided this side effect for a few years when they had their original ranking system that rewarded commitment, and fun over raw elitism.
: Pantheon is a joke
The strongest counterpick into Pantheon top is Nocturne top. Your passive outheals his poke, which forces Pantheon to use all his spears just to be able to CS. Which means he never gets kills, and never becomes relevant.
: Flamed for using Malphite Ultimate as a "fancy flash"
its a shyvana tho. Could you not have just Q'd her and ran away?
Ralanr (NA)

He doesn’t build like Irelia or Jax. free shield. Hyper mobility. Conq. a wall of damage immunity that defies all logic. builds GA, and often times mallet/Steraks.
Ralanr (NA)
: I think hard CC and being squishy are general weaknesses for him.
> [{quoted}](name=Ralanr,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=TFrFdtbQ,comment-id=0000,timestamp=2019-03-13T22:56:00.066+0000) > > I think hard CC and being squishy are general weaknesses for him. he isn't squishy... and hard CC is literally everyones "counter" so that doesn't even count. lol. Besides, hes so overloaded he can build a QSS second.
: OK. so when is Akali going to be playable again?
Honestly, Riven, Yasuo, and Sylas are so fcking broken right now that I wouldn't even mind if they just reverted Akali to her un-nerfed rework so that we have a little bit more options to pick so that its actually possible to win games.

: what champion is the True AP version of pantheon (is there any mages that fall off mid/late?)
What is this myth that Pantheon falls off? He doesn't fall off. He either pops off or is useless. but he doesn't just fall off out of nowhere.
Necroash (NA)
: Syndra Mid + Starting W + Unsealed Spellbook + Smite
predictable. Wont be realistically allowed to happen, and then youll be punished for running spellbook.

: Why is Illaoi intentionally given antisynergy with multiple keystones?
"Illaoi is the fairest champion in the game.". -Said no melee champion player, ever.
: I don't understand why mobile/evasive champs get to enjoy strong damage values
I think a good example comparison is- Nocturne to Zed. Nocturne goes in, has no way out. Zed does. He also deals less damage than Zed. Has more counterplay than Zed. Has longer R CD than Zed. Cant even duel the viable ADC pool in the event that the enemy ADC isolates themself in a lane, whereas Zed can. The only thing that can stop Zeds ult is Hourglass, the only thing that can stop Nocturnes ult, is...nearly everything and anything.
: Invisible doesn't mean immune to damage, you might not be able to see the damage but it is indeed applied if you arrive at destination, his ult works much like vi's where once you have the target it simply does not matter if they turn invisible or not. If your genuinely struggling vs her ban her, though she herself is not a problem the main issue is {{item:3046}} providing a 240-600 shield, its not a coincidence that the highest winrate adc are all champions that can dumpster if they survive initial burst {{champion:67}} {{champion:15}}

There is even a movespeed threshold where you can avoid the damage by simply not standing still.
: "There is not enough individual agency..."
You can determine 90% of matches from the load screen. Which team has the more team fight oriented comp? Odds are theyre going to win. Do one of the teams have a completely incapable of functioning comp? Nearly a guaranteed loss. Only time you cant accurately predict the outcome, is when both teams pick the same general comps. I don't think individual agency is an issue, I think team composition is just 10000% more important than we make it out to be. Doesn't matter if you go 10-0 in your top lane, and all your other lanes win as well. If your champ select broke your comp, your 10-0 lead just straight up isn't going to matter once the later half of mid game comes around.
: Whoa there if you can't kill vayne as nocturne then your not using your spell shield very well, she has literally one thing to knock you away if you spell shield that then she dies, also why are you ulting to her?? why not force the skills then ult to her?
> [{quoted}](name=Karn Bishop,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=qB4goE5i,comment-id=0001,timestamp=2019-02-24T15:20:47.288+0000) > > Whoa there if you can't kill vayne as nocturne then your not using your spell shield very well, she has literally one thing to knock you away if you spell shield that then she dies, also why are you ulting to her?? why not force the skills then ult to her? you are aware that using Tumble on Nocturnes ult, causes Nocturnes ultimate to still travel to the pre-tumble location, and deal approx zero damage to Vayne right? Following this, Vayne is generally going to be stealthed and exit stealth with Condemn+Botrk, which yes- u can spell shield the Condemn, but guess what.-You still cant reach her, and youre dead in 6 autos.
: Maybe Nocturne shouldn't autowin a duel just because he pressed R on an ADC?
> [{quoted}](name=DuskDaUmbreon,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=qB4goE5i,comment-id=0000,timestamp=2019-02-24T14:29:35.331+0000) > > Maybe Nocturne shouldn't autowin a duel just because he pressed R on an ADC? In the scenario that he's having an isolated duel with an ADC..Yes, he should pretty much autowin that, unless he Fears a minion or something. An ADC that makes a mistake like being completely isolated with something like a Nocturne in game, should be punished with a virtually guaranteed death.

: Karthus Jungle Winrate Drops 5% off a 5/10 Damage nerf
nerf it again for good measure. No one wants to see jungle Karthas ever again.
Kontext (EUNE)
: Nasus's Wither is a joke
Nasus can do whatever he wants as soon as he hits lvl 6. His weak early game doesn't even exist. Sure he cant kill you 1v1 prior to being lvl6, but very few top laners can actually prevent him from completely free farming his Q. And Wither is one of the best, if not the best gank synergetic ability in top lane, so you're never actually safe unless youre Kennen or Liss
Syrile (NA)
: Yasuo is "Fair"
i feel like his biggest imbalance is how synergestic he is with other champions, moreso than any other champion. Pretty much anyone with a knockup, kicks Yasuo 2 tiers past Godtier. Without his ult synergizing off other players knockups I feel like hed just be another run of the mill Top tier champion.
: Conqueror is busted
Honestly its terrible. most exchanges are decided and over by the time Conq activates.
: Kayle do to much
Shes overbuffed to a modernized champion standard. Things like Yasuo are the standard of balance, not something like...Nocturne for example. In otherwords shes meant to compete with the godtier, overloaded new age/modernized champions. And yes, will be better than old champions that haven't been updated yet. Probably by a rather large margin.
: Rengar Top
It can be really oppressive, BUT, it is very predictable and easy to take advantage of if your jungler payed attention and realizes there is a Rengar top, AKA a Rengar that will always be overextended because he wants to sit in bushes. to utilize his passive.
: Thoughts on the Nunu Rework from a (Former) Nunu One Trick
Old Nunu sucked. New Nunu sucks. I feel bad for Nunu players. Im not even sure what they can do to make him good, his whole identity is kind of just.....garbage.
: I know this is really shitty of me to say
Yeah Singed feeds all early game long...but hes still able to farm and keep up. Having a pure tank like Singed in the top lane is so beneficial for the late game teamfight, that's its generally worth his 0-4 lane phase.
Jobriq (NA)
: Sylas' Yorick Maiden
I noticed when a Sylas stole my Nocturne ult, and I used my ult. It acted like he used his as well. Meaning I pressed R, and it blocked vision of both teams, without him pressing R. It was pretty uncool...
: Except A. people who actually play yasuo will take shiv, since pd lost 15% attspd. B. you can cc him more than once you know

Not really. Since PD is now PD+Steraks, he can just build a QSS 2nd, pretty much every single game and do whatever he wants.
: We gut entire champions kits, but for Yasuo..
Yasuos only weakness: Completely overloaded, broken mechanics that give him a false sense that he can 1v5. Causing Yasuo to go 2-15 irregardless of how overpowered he is.
: Does Liss have feet?
why? Would you sniff betwixt her pinky toes?
: New Conqueror bother me a bit...
the change is better than live Conqueror. From a balance standpoint.
: New Conqueror bother me a bit...
: No, Seriously, Outside of getting lucky, how do you even get rank up?
Either you group/dup que with synergetic godtier champions. Or you accept the reality that youre playing a game where you are fixed into a 45-50% winrate.
Yenn (NA)
: Vayne with Spear of Shojin is really cool
Spear isn't good on Vayne, Vayne is just broken. Doesn't really matter what she builds, as long as there is a Botrk+Guinsoo involved, shes going to be broken.
: I agree that she does have several terrible matchups, she isn't a blind pick champion. Tons of supports counter her {{champion:12}} {{champion:25}} {{champion:412}} {{champion:40}} That being said, she does dumpster a lot of champs too if played well {{champion:37}} {{champion:432}} {{champion:22}} {{champion:267}} {{champion:21}} Also she does pretty well into mage supports as long as you survive the first couple levels and don't get poked down. She can easily all in level 3 {{champion:63}} {{champion:143}} {{champion:9}} {{champion:101}} {{champion:161}} {{champion:26}} I agree though that Alistar is overall the king of Tank support though, leona is still however better than the dumpster fire that is {{champion:111}} though...this champ sucks.

Nami is a soft counter if Nami knows what shes doing. Just drop your bubble on whichever ally is in Leona range, the moment you see Zenith Blade wind up. She'll just Zenith right into your bubble and die. Same concept with Soraka. She does crap on Sona, Bard, and Brand tho. Not so much Zyra, Xerath, Fiddle, and VK for the same reason as why Nami is a soft counter. Their abilties are faster CC animations than Zenith Blade, allowing them to stop it in its tracks and severely mess Leona up. Zyras root cancels out Zenith blade. Xeraths stun cancels it out. Fiddles fear cancels it out. VK's knockup cancels it out(Same idea as with Nami).

Profirix (NA)
: Share your off-meta picks, why it suits your playstyle, and whether or not you think it can be meta.
Nocturne top. Why it suits me- I like beating people with simple/mechanically "bad" champions, and I refuse to play meta. Can Nocturne top be meta? Yeah, definitely. He has the sustain, wave clear, and roam potential, and a lot of available build paths to fit into what your team needs. He also functions as a strong split pusher in the event that your team is just outright out-comped and team fighting isn't really an option. My other off meta pick is Leona Jungle. Can it be viable? Yes, definitely but Leona has a lot of distinct hard counters, so I wouldn't pick Leo jungle if I was an early pick in champ select because the odds of someone negating my entire existence by picking Thresh, Morgana, Nasus, Karthas,- theres a long list of things I don't want to match into as Leona. But if you're one of the later picks, and the enemy team doesn't have anything hard countering you, Leona is actually a really strong jungler. Like a better version of Rammus- under the circumstances that no one counter picked you.
: Shojin drecreased riven WR by over 3%
Just play Leona top, rush Spear and permanently stun a guy. Oh, run Lethal Tempo for 100% Q stun uptime upon completion of Spear.
Elohaven (NA)
: Why is everyone up in arms about Vayne/Lucian but Sivir is creeping to the #1 spot
I don't care if Sivir is overtuned, she isn't mechanically unbeatable. I can outplay her, I can play a champion with mechanics, and out mechanic her. Vayne and Lucian are Godtier mechanically, and overtuned at the same time. There is no counterplay to this, besides human error, or a huge gold disparity.
: Stop being so dependent on your jungler.......
season 9 = jungler is dependent on laners. Not the other way around
